Impressions from YOG Lillehammer 2016

NEWS: Get inspired by YOG

What is the difference between the Youth Olympics and the Olympics?

Culture and learning is just as important as sports in the Youth Olympic Games. This is something that separates the YOG from the regular Olympic Games. The athletes must be present in the Lillehammer region all ten days the Games last.

The best young athletes from the ages of 15 to 18 will come to Norway in February. Some of these people will win medals in the Olympics later in life and be the greatest athletes in the world. In Lillehammer, the spectators will have a chance to see them first, before everyone else.

The YOG consists of the same sports that we know from the Olympic Games, but will also introduce new and innovative events, such as monobob and cross-country cross.
